@gangqinjia:  I always love seeing your ring around on the boards, it’s so pretty and delicate and unusual!

I am almost 23, got engaged at 21. My e-ring is .61 carats from Tiffany’s, so very pricey, but Fiance saved for a long time for it and works full time.

Im 22 Fiance is 23. I am in school getting my masters and he is in the process of applying to medical school. My story is a little different because Fiance actually recieved some inheritence money after graduating from undergrad. He knew about it and had planned on spending some of it to buy me a ring so he could pay it off without debt. He also got an amazing deal from a jewler who had sold to his whole family before.

We bought the ring when we were 22, and we both turned 23 while it was being made (our birthdays are 7 days apart). I graduated from college last May, and Fiance has one more class to get his degree, he has defered it for a semester becuase he just got a big promotion at work and they’re heading into the busy season. My ring is a green sapphire in palladium.

I’m 20 (21 soon!) and he is 24 soon as well. He’s working fulltime and I’ll graduate next year. This is my “pre-engagement” ring, followed by the set we picked out.

We got engaged at 22/23 and were married at 24/25.  He saved for a while and paid cash for it.  Its a natural fancy intense yellow diamond with white diamond side stones.

@rachelmichelle:  Your guy sounds really hardworking and good with his money. Saving for 3 years for your ring starting at age 19 (or younger)? How long have you been engaged for? Your big day is coming up soon too, I see! SOO Exciting!

I don’t know many guys who could save like that at that age. You must feel very special ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 20 and he’s 22. I’m a college student, he works “part time” (~38 hours a week) at Subway. Not exactly glamorous, but he’s going to school when I get out. My ring is a Moissy, and was less than $500.

I got married at 21 and we didn’t have money for an ering. I just had a simple wedding band. Now the hubby (2yrs my senior) now have significantly higher incomes so we were able to purchase my dream ring this year. The wait has really paid off ๐Ÿ™‚ 

i now have a 1 carat solitaire

I’m 26, but he is 22.  So he would be considered early 20’s.  LOL I graduate this year in December *hopefully* and he is also in college.

@wederly:  GORGEOUS. Your ring is so much more beautiful than the $5k ring anyway.

@lilsweetie: He started working and saving when he was 18- he proposed last April, when he was still 21, and we got together right before I turned 17, so it’s been almost five years now.

He is probably one of the hardest-working men I know, which is honestly one of my favorite things about him. ๐Ÿ™‚ He can’t work during the school year, as he’s an architecture student (so in studio about 40 hours a week on top of his classes) and is also a secretary for one of the School of Design committees, so he busted his butt working 40-60 hours a week during all 4 months of our summer breaks- as a mover, professionally painting houses… he’s not afraid of hard-labor.

Though now that he’s got our rings out of the way, I think he’s looking for a nice cushy internship this summer, LOL.

@kay_thunderbird:  I don’t know! When I first got my ring I said ‘never,’ but Fiance asked me if I’d like a bigger stone a few years down the road when he’s got more money.

I’m so attached to my ring… if I did get an ‘upgrade’ I would have to insist that I keep my original setting, and just have the exact same kind of stone set into it.

I’d have to have my original diamond set into a necklace or something that I’d wear all the time, or put into a RHR that I could maybe give to a daughter, ’cause I’m weirdly sentimental like that.

But I’m still on the fence about the whole thing.

We’re a l’il older than you folks (gulp! 28!) but I only finished school a few years ago and Fiance is completing his PhD, so I think our thread is appropiate. We’ve been together since we were 19 but just got engaged because Fiance was saving for a ring for 3 years. He took saving very seriously but being a student sometimes at the end of the month all he had left over was $20, $40, $80 if he was lucky. 

I always told him I didn’t need a ring that I love him without it, or a wedding band would be just fine, but he didn’t say anything at the time and kept on saving. Us not getting engaged for so long was hard on me, I felt like everyone was moving forward with our lives and we were stuck (so good on you for getting engaged young if it feels right!)

He ended up selecting a 6mm sapphire ring with .25 carats side diamonds – I find diamonds wash me out being so pale and I’ve complained about it before so he chose a sapphire instead, he says it matches my eyes.. so sweet.
